Though equipped with numerous weapons and housing a contingent of Scorpion Fighters, the original Scimitar’s key feature was the ability to utilize thalaron radiation as a terrifying weapon. Shinzon first used a smaller thalaron radiation device to kill the entire Romulan Senate, and then relied on the Scimitar’s strength to back his overthrow of the Romulan government.
Praetor Shinzon attempted to deploy the Scimitar’s thalaron generator in the Battle in the Bassen Rift against the U.S.S. Enterprise-E and two Mogai-class Heavy Warbirds, but the Enterprise's crew prevented the weapon from being fired and destroyed the Scimitar – albeit at a heavy cost.
The design of the Romulan Flagship Dreadnoughts was greatly inspired by the Reman Scimitar-class Dreadnought Warbird; however the ships have a Romulan Republic aesthetic. These massive and imposing starships are durable and bristling with weaponry, but they are very slow to maneuver.
The Flambard-class Science Dreadnought Warbird has a strong Science focus, and feactures more Science Bridge Officer seating and Science console slots than other Dreadnought Warbird variants.
Purchasing the Legendary Scimitar Intel Dreadnought Warbird for 12,000 unlocks all existing ship variants.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Scimitar Dreadnought Warbird, 2,500 |
Designed by the Remans, Scimitar class is more angular when compared to the curved shapes of Romulan warbirds. Warp nacelles are located on the main hull, where most warbirds carry the nacelles on the wings. The main hull is also more square and stubby than on traditional warbirds.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Falchion Dreadnought Warbird, 2,500 |
At first glance, the Falchion class appears very similar to Scimitar. There is a more distinctive deflector array on the top of the nose, and large green bussard collectors on the warp nacelles. Various slots on the ends of the wings also glow.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Tulwar Dreadnought Warbird, 2,500 |
The most distinctive feature on the Tulwar class of Dreadnought Warbirds is that the pylons, wing tips and warp nacelle covers all having open gaps within them, giving it a more lightweight appearance.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free with this starship |
The Flambard class adds the classic Romulan flair to Reman engineering with curved hull lines and more prominent nacelles. Compared to the other new variants, the Flambard has more exposed hull sections which offer a peak into its underlying working features.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Khopesh Tactical Dreadnought Warbird, 3,000 |
The Khopesh class adds the classic Romulan flair to Reman engineering, but keeps some of the original Scimitar's ruggedness. Relatively thin wings and winglets and the backswept nacelles give the ship a more aggressive passive stance.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Shamshir Operations Dreadnought Warbird, 3,000 |
Most similar to the classic Scimitar design, the Shamshir class is bulkier when compared to the other new variants. Its most destinctive feature are large thalaron weapon emitters on the tips of its wings.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Legendary Romulan Warbird Bundle, 12,000 |
Not content with splicing Borg technology with mere battleships, Tal’Shiar scientists have finally succeeded in integrated nerve-stapled Borg technology with arcane Reman computer technology. This innovation has allowed them to develop and deploy massive adapted Dreadnought Warbirds assimilated from discarded wreckage of Scimitar-class warbirds destroyed in the Iconian War. These technological monstrosities are sinister, ugly and imposing; just the way the Tal’Shiar likes it.

Purchasing the Flambard Science Dreadnought Warbird also unlocks Romulan Drone Ship Frigates which can be equipped on any Romulan Dreadnought Warbird variant and Kelvin Timeline T'laru Intel Carrier Warbird. Romulan Drone ships utilize two unique pieces of technology. The first is Multi-Spectral Emitters, which allow them to take on the appearance of a limited variety of other types of ships. To support this technology, Romulan Drone ships are also equipped with Tri-Phasic Emitters. These change the frequency of the Drone Ship’s disruptors to emulate the weapon signatures of other weapon types, causing them to change both visually and functionally.

As a Romulan Warbird, the Flambard-class Science Dreadnought Warbird comes with built-in Singularity abilities. These abilities do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier Warbirds. These powers build in severity based on the charge built up by the ship's Singularity Core.
Romulan starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.
This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.
Equipment slots and seating
As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, science console slots and available bridge officer (boff) abilities will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:
This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.333333 for the Flambard-class Science Dreadnought Warbird), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
